Do we know if Bob/Amy have been keep an eye on the Original Nest?? Is it still in a complete state of disrepair so we are pretty sure they will be using The Yonder Nest this year???
And thank you all for the information on "scraping" on another thread...I saw that commented on and had never heard of it before!!! Our Eagles keep me learning ALL the time!!

Here's "The Nest" episode of the PBS NATURE series, "Animal Homes."  Grain-of-salt warning: the filmmakers at NATURE are good storytellers, making a complex situation entertaining and easy to understand.

I love this.  It is the first in a 3-part series about Animal Homes.  I've watched "The Nest" twice already and posted news of it and how to locate it online in a couple of other Forum threads already.  Glad you posted here about it.  The 2nd in this 3-part series aired tonight - called, "Location, Location, Location."  It shows different kinds of animal homes, and does include hummingbirds.

Went searching for artificial eagle nests in Google Scholar and didn't find much, especially current info. I think RRP and Neil have a lot to teach the world about bald eagle nest reconstruction!!!!

This is a charming story of what the authors think is the first artificial (reconstruction) bald eagle's nest. From 1969.

And from 1980, here's a paper entitled: An Artificial Bald Eagle Nest Structure. It's radical and seems to borrow heavily from constructed osprey nests.

Thanks, Finn. At least we know there's nothing much new on artificial eagle nests! LOL
